We had an amazing trip to San Diego (ie, SDCC).  SDCC = COMIC CON.  (Comic con = THE BIGGEST, BRIGHTEST POP CULTURE CON IN THE US of A.) This is my third trip to SDCC.  The first was 12 years ago.  Eliza  was 2 yrs old then, and we drove down from PDX and stopped by my aunt's house in Bolinas, and Eliza was attacked by mosquitos and was covered with bites at SDCC, so looked like she had chicken pox.  Everyone gave us A LOT of elbow room. #ProTip

Seriously, this was such a terrific weekend.  Thank you, thank you, thank you. So grateful to the hundreds of volunteers who make SDCC run, and to our incredible creative team, expecially our cohort of 14-yr-old girls -- Eliza Fantastic Mohan, Stella Greenvosss, Emily Powell.  Not to be all MOM-ISH, but I am so proud of all of you. 



OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT.  I will be at San Diego Comic Con (7/18-7/21), with MAN-EATERS varsity creative team members Lia Miternique, Rachelle Rosenberg, Eliza Fantastic Mohan, Stella Greenvoss, and Emily Powell.  Check out our panel on Friday (7/19) called "ARE GIRLS TURNING INTO KILLER CATS?" and join us for banter and autographs in the "official autograph area."  (Yeah.  I don't know what it means either.)  We'll be the ones wearing cat ears! And the other 10 thousand people at SDCC wearing cat ears?  They're our professional body doubles.  #Security.


Kill the bird

Twitter promotes extremism and it dehumanizes people.   

After I deleted my account, I went to a baseball game.  A recreational league.  I don’t care about baseball.  It was hot and the bleachers were hard.  But it was really nice to spend a few hours with two thousand strangers in a park.

Also, there were fried pickles.  


MAN-EATERS vol 1 named one of Amazon's Best Books of 2019 (so far)

MAN-EATERS vol 1 (collecting issues 1-4) was just named One of the Best Books of the Year ("so far") by Amazon.  That's pretty neat, right?!  

We are really grateful. 

You can buy MAN-EATERS vol 1 and MAN-EATERS vol 2 (collecting issues 5-8) at your local comic book store and/or independent bookshop.

To review, because it's complicated: Single issues come out every month and are available at comic book stores.  (So as I write this, comic book stores have up to issue #9.) Issues are then collected and published as volumes, and it is only at this point that the comic book is available in book stores (in addition to comic book stores).  It is a very silly and self-defeating distribution model.  But it is what we have.  

MAN-EATERS vol 3 (collecting issues 9-12) will be published in Sept or Oct (I think?). 

Here endeth the lesson. 



Incoming, Houston

Here's an interesting fact about me: I will be in Houston, Texas, this week, attending Comicpalooza with my MAN-EATERS co-creator, Lia Miternique. We will be handing out free tampons, should you need one. Also, we will have the very LAST of our limited GOLD editions of Vol 1. That's right. They are SOLID GOLD...So a pretty good investment. 

MAN-EATERS nominated for an EISNER AWARD

My comic book, MAN-EATERS, has been nominated for an Eisner Award for "Best New Series."  It's a pretty big deal.  Like, seriously.  Single issues are available in comic book stores (issue 8 came out this week!).  Volumes -- which collect 4 issues at a time -- are available at comic book stores AND book stores. Congratulations to our amazing creative team: Lia Miternique, Elise McCall, Joe Caramanga, Rachelle Rosenberg, Kate Niemczyk, Eliza Mohan, Stella Greenvoss, Emily Powell, Ava Hood, Kyle Scanlon, and our partners at Image Comics. Most of all, thank you.  Thank YOU.  

Why am I so busy?

I'm actually no more busy than normal.  I just remembered I had this website, and thought I should probably update it... 

Now, obviously, I am ON IT. 

Also, I am finding you very attractive - not YOU, you - THE WEBSITE - because I can post stuff here, and no one can comment.  

No offense.

It's just...nice.  

My name is Chelsea.  I feel like maybe we've met?

First episode of GONE airs in US on FEB 27th

We finally have a US premier date for GONE, the TV show based on my book, ONE KICK.  First episode airs at 9PM on Wednesday, Feb 27th, on WGN-America.  

Check out the trailer here:

You're probably like, "BUT I DON'T GET WGN-AMERICA, Chelsea! In fact I do not have a television set or cable and I watch all my shows via streaming apps on my phone!  WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

This is a good question. Keep your chin up. Once the show airs on WGN-America, it will be available via apps - I'm SURE there is a WGN app? - or on Netflix or iTunes or other -say it with me - LEGITIMATE - streaming services. They know what we like. 

I can't wait to watch this show with all of you.
